- Tasting Notes
A discreet application of wood sets off notably ripe liqueur-like aromas of black pinot fruit, spice, plum and lilac. There is more refinement present on the admirably pure middle weight flavors that also exhibit plenty of minerality on the detailed and seductively textured finale. As it usually is this is an exercise in harmony and grace and one that should age well thanks to its impeccable balance. Worth checking out.

Dark red-ruby. Aromas of black cherry and licorice complicated by hints of leather and animal fur. Supple, juicy, slightly high-toned kirsch and spice flavors are accented by pepper and herb notes. Doesn’t offer the sweetness of Patrick Landanger’s 2015s but this is still a rather easygoing, fine-grained wine. Finishes with dusty tannins and a lingering note of redcurrant.
